Post 1 of 2. Yesterday we stumbled upon the Qianyue building while exploring Taichung. When I say stumbled upon, I was googling why there were lots of abandoned buildings in one area of Taichung (still no idea why) and this popped up as being half a mile away. I'm obsessed with abandoned buildings so we HAD to go there. Very glad we did - it's up there with our favourite experiences of our trip to date.
The place is maintained by a collective of graffiti artists called Escape Plan X and there seem to be some people still living in the building. The artwork and general vibe of the place is just so cool. You can explore most of the building and we were lucky enough to catch an incredible sunset. Up on the roof, you could easily convince yourself that you were in a scene from the Walking Dead. Unique and truly unforgettable experience.
